Booked on the hotel’s own website for four nights in a Pool View Room. We arrived around 8:30pm and checked in swiftly. We unpacked two suitcases into the closet. There was plenty of space for hanging clothes. If anything we would have liked more drawer space. The bathroom had a decent shower and nice toiletries. There is even a TV...

Dear NinthEagle, Thank you for your recent stay with us - and your very detailed glowing review! It is interesting to see the pattern that our Guests choose to enjoy themselves. Some prefer a relaxed at-home environment, others want the beach and watersports, and still others want to exhaust themselves on the many attractions that Miami has to offer. I...

The Betsy is a charming not too big hotel, ideally placed on Ocean Drive. The service in the hotel is excellent including top roof terrace and seats on the beach. The bathroom was tiny though and the swimming pool location is not that attractive.

Two incidents soured our stay. First, our room smelled of urine. When we brought this to the attention of the management, the excuses were adventurous. Second, our scooters which were parked across the street from the hotel were towed - the staff stood by without notifying us!! Cost: 600 Dollars and no apology.

Great location in South Beach. On beach, with chairs, towels, umbrellas. Terrific staff -- upgraded us to a suite for no apparent reason. Walk to the action on Ocean Ave. and Collins Ave. Modern conveniences in the room. Classic South Beach decor outside. Excellent restaurant in the hotel.

Dear Peter B, Thank you for your recent visit, and for your great review! Our reason for your upgrade is simple: a third of the rooms at the Betsy are actually suites, some with separate living areas and oversize baths. Whenever possible, we like for our Guests to experience these accommodations. Our suites are usually the first to book, but...

The rooms are small at the Betsy, but in keeping with the period it was built. The customer service was great at all points, even knowing where we could find the friends we came to see upon checking in.
